Continued on the Savannah Way to Pinnarena Station Farm Stay (Nadine & Ronnie) which has only been open for 6 weeks. They have lots of ideas for this farm stay but think they should have waited to open as no facilities available and cost was $10 per night for a piece of dirt to camp on, no facilities and no dump point.

|(Mareeba) Kerribee Rodeo Grounds, early morning ballon flights|
As we house sat in Atherton for 2 months in 2014 we have seen a lot of the area so intended to revisit some places and catch up on ones we missed. Headed down to Cairns for 2 nights as had Van booked in for replacement of gas element cut out valve and Toyota booked in for Service. Stayed at Cairns Holiday Park - crowded, people everywhere, planes taking off/landing, trains and traffic!! Had a great catch up for lunch with Lyn & Tom who own the Cannon Park Motel (luckily they had a bit of time off) at the Botanical Gardens Cafe. Great walking around the Gardens - lots of very different plants. Back to the Caravan Park to a Ukulele Jazz Session - interesting to say the least!!
|Mareeba Multi Cultural Show|
Spent 4 nights back at Mareeba Rodeo Grounds and returned to the Coffee Works for stock up of coffee. Spent an afternoon at the Multi Cultural Show which was a free event and provided wonderful entertainment with dancing, singing, poetry from different countries represented in the Community, including Fiji, Tonga, Germany, Spain, South America, Indigenous Australia. Also had food stalls selling authentic dishes from different countries. We stayed until the end and left feeling very uplifted. The Rodeo Grounds also hosted a Horse Event and Helen sat up in the stands watching little kids and junior section riding around obstacles trying to maneuver the course in the quickest time.
